SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks left Thursday night’s 30-19 preseason finale loss to the Oakland Raiders with two notable injuries along the offensive line.
Starting right tackle Germain Ifedi turned his ankle during the game, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
“He did turn his ankle,” Carroll said. “I don’t know how serious it is but he did turn his ankle so we’ll have to see how that goes.”
Regarding Ifedi’s injury, Carroll later went on to say “it wasn’t bad” when asked further about the severity. Carroll additionally mentioned Ifedi would probably need the upcoming week to recover.
Isaiah Battle, who started at left tackle with Duane Brown resting, was sidelined during the game due to illness.
“He’s been sick during the week and it just caught up with him,” Carroll said. “He was exhausted.”
Carroll also had an update about linebacker K.J. Wright, who underwent knee surgery earlier in the week. Wright’s timeframe of returning in a couple of weeks is still the same but Carroll said Wright is feeling positive after the operation.
“He was very positive about it, he feels good and really we’re keeping with the timeframe,” Carroll said. “He’s going to take a shot a couple of weeks from now, we’ll see how it goes.”
Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, now a member of the Oakland Raiders, returned to CenturyLink Field Thursday night for the first time since coming out of retirement to join his hometown team last year. The Seahawks and Raiders will close out the preseason against one another for the 13th straight year.
